This ride is for strong intermediate and advanced cyclists. It is not a scenic trip, but is a good workout. The trails are hoof-worn double-tracks used mostly by cattle and equestrians. Gravel roads account for about one-third of the circuit, and they are in good shape. Finding your way on this route is a challenge, at one point the trail fades away completely. The loop includes steep climbs and descents. The ride starts at Fish Lake, approximately 20 miles north of Halfway, a remote small town in northeastern Oregon.
